Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This is a mystery interspersed with humorous scenes and moments. Here's the story in a nutshell: Someone killed Allain Babineaux just outside of Joe's Saloon. This event affects just about everybody in the community of Serpentville and Ellison Parish. The sheriff is up for reelection and wants the case solved before the governor visits the parish seat. Jonel Pipe, the local deputy sheriff wants to solve the case, so he can have access to his mother-in-law's money mattress. Modena Pipe, his wife, uses the time he's away, working on the case, to learn English and get new teeth. Deputy Argus Monroe, the "outsider," in a culture he has a hard time comprehending, wants to arrive at the truth and hates the sheriff's "shortcuts." Amanda Babineaux, Alain's wife, who worked hard at making her husband as miserable as he made her, blames herself for his death, perhaps with good reason. Beatrice Peterson, Amanda's sister, and Alain's old girlfriend hated Alain and is glad he's dead. Viola Fontenot, soap opera addict and card reader, looks at the murder as a "real" soap opera. Pete LaSache, storyteller and clairvoyant, knows who killed Alain, drops hints in his stories, but nobody listens. Slim Lebleau, Alain's sidekick, frequently visited The Four Corners houses of prostitution on the outskirts of Ellisonville along with him. Phoebe, the prostitute, who knows the truth about Sheriff Franklin and is willing to share it with Argus. They, along with the other inhabitants of Serpentville and Ellison Parish, try to solve, or take advantage of, the Babineaux murder in their own unique ways.
